Attorneys in The DarrowEverett Health Care Practice Group assist clients with life cycle representation for medical practices and health care services organizations, including professional organization acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures, buy-sell structures and financings – both debt and equity and related to both real estate and commercial assets.
As general counsel for medical practices, we guide our clients through health care practice matters both common and unique including expansion opportunities, compensation planning, employment and non-competition agreements, consultant and independent contractor matters, HIPAA privacy laws, medical records protection and information technology issues.
Whether prosecuting civil claims against health care vendors, defending department of health investigations, or providing white collar criminal defense representation, our health care litigation attorneys have the industry experience to handle any health care industry related dispute. For example, the firm’s Health Care Practice Group has successfully resolved physician compensation disputes and employment actions, including enforcement of covenants not to compete, wrongful termination defense and other claims.
As a result of the ever-increasing government spending on health care, agencies such as the Department of Justice dedicate significant resources to the investigation and prevention of health care fraud. We represent health care professionals and business owners in connection with federal and state grand jury investigations involving allegations of Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse, the False Claims Act (and its state-level counterparts) and other fraud-related claims. DarrowEverett’s Health Care Practice Group aims to further our clients’ mission to provide quality health care to the general public. Our diverse practice enables us to provide our health care clients with effective legal counsel when confronted with critical issues manifested within the rapidly evolving and heavily-regulated health care environment.
